asciilifeform: and entertaining, while i wait for trainz in this here zimbabwestan [08:54]
mircea_popescu: where are you anyway [08:54]
asciilifeform: chicago [08:55]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform dude's something else, linux client is so stable people run it from wed to wed (server updates and brief downtime weds) jurov made a windows version that's just as stable - everyone else who runs it has no conn problems. [08:55]
mircea_popescu: then this hack went in and grubstreet'd all over, to the point he crashes all the time, so he made himself a watchdog. which i suppose needs a watchdog of its own [08:55]
mircea_popescu: and will resist any attempt to be helped - such as for instance by people who actually understand computing reading his abomination and laughing at him - to the degree he'll get kicked out. [08:56]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform> chicago << oh, they finally wised up an' sent you to the meat packing plant ? [08:56]
asciilifeform: what i still can't figure out is: [08:56]
asciilifeform: why! [08:56]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: aha, they even use the squeal !111 [08:56]
* shinohai had dream last night of asciilifeform 's head in a jar futurama style. [08:56]
mircea_popescu: to quote romania's nat'l poet, "nu cerceta aceste legi, caci esti nebun de le-ntelegi" [08:57]
mircea_popescu: ie, do not research these laws, for understanding them means you're insane. [08:57]
asciilifeform: shinohai: did it eat fish food like nixon's head? [08:57]
shinohai: lel [08:58]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it isn't clear from the link how the 'bite' ended. i assume you kicked the moron? [09:01]
mircea_popescu: no, i ... banned him. [09:01]
asciilifeform: ~= [09:02]
mircea_popescu: guess so huh. [09:02]
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Remember that the Chicago River is an open sewer so feel free to bathroom there [09:04]
asciilifeform: whole place looks like sewer [09:04]
asciilifeform: and crumbling.. [09:04]
BingoBoingo: Well yes. Chicago is a shithole. [09:05]
asciilifeform: i thought dc was rock bottom usa - it isn't. [09:05]
BingoBoingo: Have you been to the city center yet? [09:05]
asciilifeform: about to [09:06]
mircea_popescu: actually from what i hear new orleans overtook detroit even in terms of sheer shithole. [09:06]
BingoBoingo: Center is roughly where river meets lake [09:06]
mircea_popescu: new shit meets old fermented shit ? [09:06]
mircea_popescu: anyway, you two gonna hang out for a beer or something ? [09:06]
BingoBoingo: Aha, except they actually reversed the flow of the river at some point so new shit goes to Mississippi river after crossing state. [09:06]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: fortunately nobody i'm ever likely to visit is in new orleans [09:07]
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I'm still a few hundred miles away. [09:07]
mircea_popescu: ah [09:07]
BingoBoingo: Near st louis. [09:08]
BingoBoingo: Far more honest city about it's state of decay which is still far less than Chicago's evn if the fauna here are a bit more... [09:09]
asciilifeform: anyway i traded commute hell for very occasional expeditions to heathen pestholes. [09:10]
mircea_popescu: it's good for you. [09:10]
mircea_popescu: now find a local girlfriend. [09:10]
asciilifeform: lel she'd have to be a cracked cement plinth, likely. [09:11]
mircea_popescu: why, you've replaced your pecker with a steam jack ? [09:11]
asciilifeform: will have to! [09:12]
asciilifeform: to take proper use of this place. [09:12]
mircea_popescu: anyway, i'm not even kidding. best thing for you. [09:12]
asciilifeform: which? to learn to fuck plinth? [09:13]
mircea_popescu: no, to get a local girlie. [09:15]
asciilifeform: ah [09:15]
asciilifeform: i have nfi how this is done [09:16]
mircea_popescu: put yourself in tinder or whatever they use, "wise cosmopolitan gentleman (visited buenos aires! and timisoara!) with lots of dough to burn looking for local belle to show me a good time." [09:16]
asciilifeform: esp since i dun zoophilia [09:16]
mircea_popescu: you ever had a massage ? [09:16]
mircea_popescu: relax and let the girl do her work! [09:16]
asciilifeform: chix with faces are ~100 ppm in usa. [09:17]
mircea_popescu: or what, suppose you go to teh movies, what do you do, instead of sitting down and shutting up like everyone else you bust into the projectionist's room and jockey the machine ? [09:17]
asciilifeform: lel [09:18]
mircea_popescu: add "must be conversant wihile wearing paper bag on head" to your ad if you must [09:19]
mircea_popescu: (no, it won't deter. nothing will deter. to quote shaw, [09:20]
mircea_popescu: " Men, on the other hand, attach penalties to marriage, depriving women of property, of the franchise, of the free use of their limbs, of that ancient symbol of immortality, the right to make oneself at home in the house of God by taking off the hat, of everything that he can force Woman to dispense with without compelling himself to dispense with her. All in vain. Woman must marry because the race must perish without her tra [09:20]
mircea_popescu: vail: if the risk of death and the certainty of pain, danger, and unutterable discomforts cannot deter her, slavery and swaddled ankles will not.") [09:20]
asciilifeform: atm i'm working on sloth (no sleep in 24hr) and then gluttony [09:21]
mircea_popescu: attend to your immortal soul before you attend to the base needs of the flesh! [09:21]
asciilifeform: also i'm finally in a train... [09:21]
mircea_popescu: local girlfriend first. any adolescent knows. and adolescence is aristocratic by not knowing better. [09:21]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu is talented man. i have 2 dayz. local gurl historically takes me decade... [09:23]
asciilifeform: it is like neutrino experiment. [09:23]
mircea_popescu: don't make me put the sheeny curse on you so you end up having to go back and back again for a decade! [09:23]
asciilifeform: that'd be spiffy tho ! [09:24]
Framedragger: [fwiw yeah +1 for tinder, though it does use effin facebook last i checked, etc etc, one more thing to re-build in a non-shitty fashion....] [09:24]
asciilifeform: can i also factor phatnunz while i loop??! [09:24]
asciilifeform: numz [09:24]
asciilifeform: fuck this machine [09:24]
mircea_popescu: perv. [09:25]
mircea_popescu: gayety is one thing, alf. but machinism ?! [09:25]
mircea_popescu: where did we go wrong! [09:25]
mircea_popescu: Framedragger iirc no girls actually wanted to be on tinder because dudes'd just hit on everyone and then not show up. [09:25]
mircea_popescu: wotproblem of sorts. [09:26]
Framedragger: ya, true. some dudes are selective but most are just desperate and/or can't be bothered. different algos so to speak, heh [09:26]
mircea_popescu: historically, the "whatever" algo is actually pretty successful. [09:26]
asciilifeform: i thought it was because gurl already knows where the local mircea_popescu lives [09:26]
Framedragger: (girls are on there tho) [09:26]
mircea_popescu: certainly how everyone here present came to be. [09:26]
asciilifeform: and needs no appz [09:26]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform women like variety just like normal people do. [09:27]
Framedragger: yeah seems to have worked for these low entropy pockets around stars, pretty nifty!! [09:27]
asciilifeform: i like variety, but dun eat from garbage, say [09:27]
asciilifeform: variety tends to mean something quite specific for most folx [09:28]
mircea_popescu: varietits. [09:28]
mircea_popescu: anyway, garbage has a tense relationship with sexuality. [09:28]
mircea_popescu: possibly because of the officially-intolerable [09:29]
a111: Logged on 2016-05-24 11:33 mircea_popescu: in fact the historical justification for broad female slavery is that the sex is better that way. [09:29]
Framedragger: " garbage has a tense relationship with sexuality." << related film: [09:30]
mircea_popescu: the whole impetuus of, say, romeo and juliet is the respective famblies going "op is garbage!!1". the lady an' the tramp is pretty much the "modern democracy" attempt at subverting and perhaps reclaiming the trite truth of the previous generations, ie, that nothing gets a gent going quite like the lady's maid. [09:31]
mircea_popescu: Framedragger meh, lost me at "elderly". but the korine name is vaguely familiar. [09:31]
Framedragger: yeah korine is an interesting guy. the film itself is random as fuck. literally folks humping trash, and just doing other bizarre things throughout film. i'd say it's an intereseting experience, to watch it i mean, but i believe when i watched it i was on a bit of acid. dunno how it would have got with me being completely sane.. [09:33]
asciilifeform: meanwhile loudspeaker: '... and gambling, are prohibited on cta vehicles...' [09:33]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ahh, isn't it refreshing, to be in a place where they hafta say that ? [09:34]
asciilifeform: aha. [09:34]
asciilifeform: i gotta find the shell game or whatsit. [09:35]
mircea_popescu: faro ? [09:35]
asciilifeform: im on train not timemachine [09:35]
* asciilifeform bbl [09:37]
mircea_popescu: if he's going to bbl... technically he is on time machine. [09:50]
mircea_popescu: lmao this is pretty rich news. so asciilifeform : it'd seem the raid on phuctor's machine is failing and the thing will have to be serviced. plox turn it off in your own time and let me know when it's ok to send teh service team in. [09:53]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it had better stay afloat till saturday morning if at all possib [09:59]
mircea_popescu: o.O [09:59]
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: have you considered serving all phuctor public stuff on a static frontend proxy of sorts? [09:59]
mircea_popescu: three days. you know what raids are, right ? if it smokes we're fucked. [09:59]
Framedragger: inb4 go read teh logz lol [09:59]
mircea_popescu: Framedragger my involvement is more remote, alf handles the tech there. [09:59]
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i can switch off cleanly tonight, in principle [10:00]
Framedragger: asciilifeform: ^ sorry im making you repeat yourself [10:00]
mircea_popescu: that'd be good then. [10:00]
Framedragger: *if [10:00]
asciilifeform: worx [10:00]
mircea_popescu: drop me a line once it's off. [10:00]
asciilifeform: will do [10:00]
* asciilifeform bbl moar [10:00]
Framedragger: asciilifeform: ah i recall you mentioning need for real-time data spitting-out. again this can be worked out but i don't want to be presumptuous, as in, "omg this is easily sortable just use pr0xi". just sayin, worth considertaion, perhpas [10:06]
Framedragger: ( other news hosters seem to cave in to the "we gun ban your ip cause we saw three TCP SYN packets to :22 on our block" threats and do not allow any scanning whatsoever. may be the exception and are cooperative, will see how they tolerate some scanz) [10:15]
Framedragger: (again, general ipv4 mapping is no prob, it's the more particular ssh key extraction that is slow and very hax0ry apparently) [10:16]
Framedragger: (but i didn't spend much time dealing with this lately, busy with afk stuff. however will return to quest soon) [10:18]
mircea_popescu: Framedragger be specific. [10:20]
Framedragger: "Dear Sir / Madam, [10:21]
Framedragger: Scanning ports is forbidden on our network. We cannot even do some exeption in our anti-hack detecting system just for your server." <- this is e.g. kimsufi/OVH who are otherwise not complete govt bitches (they appeal court orders, ran wikileaks servers, lots tor exit nodes etc - not to say that this amount to too much) [10:21]
Framedragger: more or less same from hetzner, digital ocean, and a local lithuanian provider which i've been using for a few years [10:22]
mircea_popescu: so they banned you or what exactly happened ? you read their verbiage ? [10:22]
Framedragger: ah - sorry for not being specific - no i ceased activities,and they were fine. OVH i didn't even try, i sent a query first like a good house guest [10:22]
mircea_popescu: i still can't piece this together. let's try a sane example format : [10:23]
Framedragger: digital ocean e.g. - scanned more than querter of ipv4 space using TCP SYN (masscan) - so just to see which :22 hosts are up - received numerous abuse complaints from all over the net, all forwarded to me [10:23]
Framedragger: pleaded with them and they said okok we won't ban but don't do this again [10:23]
mircea_popescu: i rented a [vps/dedicated/colocated] machine from X, i sent a total of Y packets of so and so in Z interval they <changed my logs and stole my remaining time|sent me support ticket complaining|etc>" [10:24]
mircea_popescu: that sorta thng [10:24]
Framedragger: now i'll try scaleway / and i don't use them for anything else so i'm fine with being banned. they said OK to my "responsible academic scanning" query. doesn't mean they'll follow through. but i'll just keep scanning / doing ssh extraction there, and rsyncing often, so that if/when i get eventually banned this wouldn't be a problem. [10:25]
mircea_popescu: mk [10:25]
Framedragger: right, i'll do that, but later. sorry for not being specific, just wanted to rant, which is not too constructive [10:25]
mircea_popescu: np [10:25]
asciilifeform: << stinks of 'inspection' a la dulap-1 imho [10:30]
a111: Logged on 2016-05-25 13:53 mircea_popescu: lmao this is pretty rich news. so asciilifeform : it'd seem the raid on phuctor's machine is failing and the thing will have to be serviced. plox turn it off in your own time and let me know when it's ok to send teh service team in. [10:30]
mircea_popescu: possibru. [10:30]
mircea_popescu: in other news, france saw over 500k arrests in 2007, which is to say 1% of the population was arrested THAT YEAR, or, if things continue at the same rate, ~everyone then alive'd have a better chance to be arrested rather than not be, during his lifetime. [10:37]
mircea_popescu: except things didn't continue at the same rate, and 2014 was an all time record. [10:37]
mircea_popescu: most of which, amusingly enough, are "delit d'association de malfaiteurs en relation avec une entreprise terroriste". hurr durr. [10:38]
shinohai: <<< a hardware company buying multibit code [11:04]
mircea_popescu: how much ? [11:05]
asciilifeform: shinohai: hardware wallets remain hilarious jokes [11:05]
asciilifeform: if from nothing else but that they WITHOUT EXCEPTION require shitware on pc side [11:06]
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i'm just surprised it wasn't an acquihire. no fducking idea why anyone else'd "buy" the sort of turd. [11:06]
shinohai: Well I never liked multibit either, so [11:07]
shinohai: Hard and soft turds combine to produce new, more repulsive pos [11:08]
shinohai: <<< bwahaha "I am Chiang Kat Shek" [11:12]
mircea_popescu: wow gloves [11:27]
shinohai: <<< moar coinbase slock, we failed at Bitcoin so surely Ethereum shall save us. [12:34]
trinque: Ethereum has a growth mindset while Bitcoin has a false sense of accomplishment << wahahahaha [12:40]
trinque: good riddance [12:40]
trinque: and oh the ways the socialists and advertisers have destroyed English [12:41]
shinohai: well I suppose weed growth is still, technically, growth. [12:41]
trinque: apparently an inanimate thing can have a mindset because somebody put some words together [12:42]
mircea_popescu: to bolster the leverage point asciilifeform : consider reading merely the list of traded items in "london labour and the london poor" (an otherwise unfrequentable pile of steaming socialistoid shit). [13:17]
mircea_popescu: cca mid 19th century - definitely post industrial age - people actually traded used underwear. not just young women's used underwear either. [13:17]
mircea_popescu: shirt fronts. [13:17]
mircea_popescu: labour was so ill esteemed it was actually worth someone's time to take out a shirt front off a shirt and hem in a replacement. [13:17]
mircea_popescu: fucking phones aren't worth the fix today. but then - shirts. [13:18]
mircea_popescu: shinohai well, the usg party is ever less confident they'll get much over a summer of forks "ethereum is good" was the backup. [13:19]
mircea_popescu: trinque "it's the community" "which, the supine troop of nobodies crowding the mit soup kitchen ?" "YES! PREMIERE TECHNICAL AND SCIENTIFIC INSTITUTION IN THE WORLD!" "whatever. make sure you teach them how lightbulbs work." [13:20]
trinque: that shit can die with the body of christ and all other congruent imaginary social aggregates [13:26]
mircea_popescu: in other news, [13:27]
ben_vulpes: [14:17]
ben_vulpes: > a server as bad as your email [14:17]
ben_vulpes: > btc [14:17]
mircea_popescu: erect your serevr at box cock li ? [14:18]
ben_vulpes: worth a chuckle and an invitation to the wot methinks [14:19]
mod6: heh [14:20]
mircea_popescu: prolly so. besides, i'm thinking the correct way to handle the whole $bash thing is to have a sort of wot-aws equivalent. [14:20]
mircea_popescu: dja talk to them ? [14:20]
ben_vulpes: notyet [14:21]
mircea_popescu: oh in other lolz : xenforo, the "improved" successor of vbulletin web forum software uses the following member enum scheme : [14:21]
mircea_popescu: spot the lulz. [14:21]
ben_vulpes: invited [14:24]
mircea_popescu: o lordy. so 1st xenforo "security" improvement : where the old vbulletin system passed back and forth md5 hashes of passwords (in plain and utf duplicate versions), the improvement just sends it plain. [14:38]
mircea_popescu: how to get all user credentials for any xenforo forum ? put a box in promiscuous mode en route and listen to the fucking posts. [14:38]
ben_vulpes: dang [14:42]
mircea_popescu: such a pile of shit. the ancient bbsessionhash as unique session identifier has been renamed to xf_session and that's the extent of the changes. [14:53]
mircea_popescu: and then they had a dispute and the court actually bought the notion one's not copied off the other. [14:53]
mircea_popescu: in vaguely related news, [14:54]
phf: i seem to have a highly useful skill of missing out on b-a drama [15:14]
pete_dushenski: or you keep a lid on it [15:14]
pete_dushenski: << to quote an alf, i thought 'everyone knows' that there's a panda infestation up north [15:15]

pete_dushenski: $s everyone knows [15:15]
pete_dushenski: eh give it two weeks [15:15]
pete_dushenski: << 'Existing evidence suggests that the related earnings advantages disappear after several generations. This column challenges this view by comparing tax records for family dynasties (identified by surname) in Florence, Italy in 1427 and 2011. The top earners among the current taxpayers were found to h [15:20]
pete_dushenski: ave already been at the top of the socioeconomic ladder six centuries ago. This persistence is identified despite the huge political, demographic, and economic upheavals that occurred between the two dates.' [15:20]
pete_dushenski: hehe. so what you thought was evidence really wasn't and what you thought was upheaval really wasn't. beautiful, really. the whole charade can't even stand up to a simple registry check despite centuries of dedicated revisionism [15:22]
pete_dushenski: in other leaves, lazers are useful to reading compact discs AND measuring tree sleep [15:25]
mircea_popescu: either that or women tend to marry into wealth and change their name [15:32]
pete_dushenski: << saiwuut ? no one said you should live there, but to visit zoo stylez ? it's brilliant. [15:33]

pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: smart wimminz then [15:33]
mircea_popescu: except "eggs florentine" were named specifically in recognition of those women'z talent at not fathering sons with their husbands. [15:34]
mircea_popescu: really, the whole exercise is more of a "here\s just how fucking useless your civil registry is" than anything [15:34]
pete_dushenski: what's the eggs florentine story ? [15:35]
mircea_popescu: eh, just an off the cuff joke. [15:36]
mircea_popescu: the eggs are drenched in hollandaise if two guys fuck a gal it's hard to avoid getting cum on your ballsac. [15:36]
pete_dushenski: ah k. well i'd rather share a chick than eat anything with hollandaise on it. but maybe i'm not from the right part of the mediterranean. [15:39]

mircea_popescu: so then... lessee... why did you quit college ? [16:12]
pete_dushenski: "The Romania-based e-mail admin concluded his video with this proclamation: "It’s raining dicks right now. And the forecast isn’t that good either. There’s a 90 percent chance of dicks tonight and a 90 percent chance of dicks tomorrow."" << gggggold [16:12]
mircea_popescu: lool [16:13]
vc: Framedragger: uh, rather I haven't actually received my ip space yet [16:13]
vc: mircea_popescu: I dropped out because I was at a shit university and also I had a job where I was making as much as with a degree so I didn't really see the point [16:13]
mircea_popescu: what was your major ? [16:13]
vc: since then my decision has been confirmed with professional experience and also I'm travelling the world instead which has been leagues better to me than university ever was [16:14]
vc: CS, specializing in computer security [16:14]
mircea_popescu: ever thought of trying something more alligned with the actual purpose of universities, ie, scoring ? dunno, humanities, bidniss, whatever ? [16:14]
vc: maybe, though I have heard bad things about the university here, I am currently living in romania ) [16:15]
mircea_popescu: where in romania ? [16:15]
vc: bucharest [16:15]
mircea_popescu: possibly shittiest city in the whole country. try brasov or cluj or something eh. [16:15]
mircea_popescu: so how do you like romania ? [16:16]
Framedragger: vc: k, gotcha. thanks and that's useful to know [16:16]
vc: it's great, the internet here is very fast and the food is very good :@) [16:16]
vc: it's also very cheap to live here, considering I still work for a US company [16:16]
diana_coman: <mircea_popescu> possibly shittiest city in the whole country. try brasov or cluj or something eh <- ahahaa, in that Bucharest is the only *city* as such... [16:16]
mircea_popescu: i lived there for a few years. 2nd bitcoin conference also held there (timisoara). meanwhile though, moved to argentina. [16:17]
diana_coman: towns plenty, way better than Bucharest too, sure [16:17]
mircea_popescu: so what was your involvement in that 2015 "scandal" ? [16:17]
vc: someone registered on my public E-mail server and sent threats through my service, I was the only public face other than the police or the school district so I was subject to a lot of media attention [16:18]
vc: I was all over the news in the US and Romania for 3 or 4 days [16:19]

deedbot: shinohai rated vc 1 << Thanks for as well [16:23]
vc: BTC was $0.8 - $0.9 [16:23]
mircea_popescu: did you do anything ? services, whatever ? [16:24]
vc: mostly just between friends, and buying stuff with bitcoin when it was available [16:25]
vc: I gave away several bitcoin when they were worth nothing :) [16:25]
mircea_popescu: you ever heard about eulora ? [16:25]
vc: nope [16:25]
mircea_popescu: how about sec sending supoenas to this romanian-based dude back in 2012, when they were posturing about satoshi dice ? [16:26]
vc: I do remember satoshi dice, though I don't remember buch past that [16:27]
vc: much* [16:27]
mircea_popescu: interesting how fragmented this supposed "bitcoin community" actually is. alright, so what's your plan with the hoster ? what was it, ? [16:27]
vc: the email site is , the VPS provider is [16:27]
vc: the former is not-for-profit, the second is for-profit [16:28]
mircea_popescu: do you plan to pivot from corporate life to independence with it ? or is it just a hobby on the side ? for the lulz ? for the whats ? [16:28]
vc: the server hardware I purchased can host a maximum of 280 clients with some more memory and disk space, so after I get it up and running and stable then I'm probably going to go for that [16:28]
vc: I don't think those are necessarily mutually exclusive ) [16:29]
mircea_popescu: hehe. so what do you mean "get it up and running and stable" ? [16:29]
vc: I have literally 0 experience running a VPS provider [16:29]
mircea_popescu: what do you have experience with ? [16:29]
phf: "Despite what some may tell you, does not tolerate abuse of its servers. [...] Due to my privacy policy which protects my user's data, you will probably not receive a response." nice [16:30]
vc: I have lots of experience as a linux sysadmin, which helps ) [16:30]
mircea_popescu: that's not really 0 then, is it ? [16:30]
vc: I dream of a world where I incorporate and operate and expand a semi-trolling corporation [16:30]
vc: the way I had it described to me is "almost like ironic professionalism" [16:30]
vc: also yes, fair point :) [16:30]
mircea_popescu: do you happen to know the republic has been looking for an actual republican isp ? [16:31]
mircea_popescu: actually, you even heard of tmsr ? [16:31]
vc: I take inspiration from GNAA in that regard, though I think I could make it into an actual profit-producing company [16:31]
vc: I have no idea of the republic or tmsr I just heard shit was hot and poppin' here so I joined [16:31]
mircea_popescu: pretty cool. so... are you married ? [16:32]
vc: nope, I'm 21 [16:32]
vc: I almost got married though a couple years ago [16:32]
mircea_popescu: what broke it off ? [16:32]
vc: (after a 6 year relationship, so it's not like I was jumping in feet-first) [16:33]
vc: oh, you know, reasons ) [16:33]
mircea_popescu: as in, other cocks ? [16:33]
vc: turned out to be one of the best decisions I've made [16:33]
vc: haha [16:33]
vc: not getting married has allowed me to pursue travelling the world and pursuing other ventures [16:33]
vc: only after it was all over did I realize I'm too damn young to get married [16:34]
mircea_popescu: so where've you been besides maine and bucharest ? [16:34]
mircea_popescu: $up vc [16:34]
deedbot: vc voiced for 30 minutes. [16:35]
mircea_popescu: you can also self-up by telling the bot $up in a pm [16:35]
vc: nowhere that's public information :@) though I plan on backpacking most of europe next year [16:35]
vc: and asia the year after that [16:35]
mircea_popescu: sounds like a plan eh. so what's your favourite romanian dish ? [16:35]
vc: cow bone soup O_O [16:36]

mircea_popescu: ie oxtail ? [16:36]
mircea_popescu: i do. [16:36]
vc: I went with an older friend who was a government official before he retired [16:36]
vc: crazy place [16:36]
mircea_popescu: so what don't you like about it ? [16:37]
mircea_popescu: the place, i mean. [16:37]
vc: Excelsior? Nah it was great [16:37]
vc: it [16:37]
mircea_popescu: nah, the country. [16:37]
vc: ah [16:37]
vc: I don't really know anything I don't like, though I did see a gypsy shitting in the street about a month ago, that was pretty unsettling [16:38]
mircea_popescu: better in the street than in your enchilada though. [16:38]
vc: hah [16:38]
phf: wait till you make it to asia.. [16:38]
vc: how do I do this fancy OTP thing [16:38]
mircea_popescu: alrighty, anything you want to tell teh readership in closing ? [16:38]

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo whadda ya think ? acceptabru ? i'll clean it up an' send over. [16:40]
mircea_popescu: vc it sends you a link, it contains a pgp encrypted thing, you decrypt it and feed it back as $v blabla [16:41]

vc: phf: the hardware is set to get here friday, so it will launch saturday [16:41]
mircea_popescu: so how about you stop dicking around and just colocate some boxes and weld the cages shut ? [16:42]
vc: lmao [16:42]
mircea_popescu: << the ro papers are the lulz of all times. [16:42]
vc: I am colocating, and yes physical security is a serious consideration ) [16:42]
vc: yeah, I did interviews for digi 24, antena 3, antena 1, and uh whatever the public broadcast one is [16:43]
mircea_popescu: did you fuck any of the starlets yet ? [16:43]
vc: most of them falsely claimed I was wanted by the FBI [16:43]
vc: lmao I haven't seen any [16:43]
mircea_popescu: listen, romanian tv exists ~ for a single reason : so a group of like minded twentysomething chicks can advertise they're available. goes ~500 bucks unless you're very weird. [16:44]
vc: wtf [16:44]
mircea_popescu: next time tv crew pops up, ask them. [16:44]
vc: I can't tell if you're serious or not [16:45]
mircea_popescu: dead serious. [16:45]
mircea_popescu: the system's been around for decades i fucked a bunch in my day. recently they tried to close the thing down, arrested gals by the pail, but... from what i hear it didn't take. [16:46]
Framedragger: (man, i just remembered one of the reasons i started hanging around here. these characters and their stories..) [16:47]

vc: so how do these chicks advertise themselves? from TV shows, or adverts? [16:50]
mircea_popescu: you see that she is on tv, and know what that means, pretty much. [16:50]
vc: what like any female on TV? [16:50]
mircea_popescu: well no, but any female in the age range with no obvious reason of being there. [16:50]
mircea_popescu: as they say in poker, the reason IS obvious, just maybe not to you. [16:50]
mircea_popescu: though credit where credit's due, the italian tv invented the method. [16:51]
vc: I'd pay $500 to fuck the journalist at antena 1 that interviewed me tbh [16:51]
vc: haven't found the video of that interview but she was pretty qt [16:51]
mircea_popescu: so you're an adult, get some contacts in the trade an' ask around. odds being in your favour. [16:51]
Framedragger: vc: paid for a vps, lemme know if box 'hivc' becomes a nuisance in terms abuse complaints, willya :) [17:00]
vc: will do ) [17:01]
mircea_popescu: ah, right, prolly should get a node. hey vc what do you recommend for bitcoin node ? vps carry it ? [17:03]
vc: I'm not sure what you're referring to. Are you asking me how I'm doing btc payments? [17:04]
mircea_popescu: i am asking you, if i intend to run a btc node, ie, a blockchain's worth of gb etc, what's the solution offers [17:04]
vc: oh, how large is the blockchain nowadays? [17:05]
jurov: 70GB [17:05]
vc: wew lad [17:05]
vc: only the 4GB server with 120GB storage would be able to store that, though if running a bitcoind node is your intention then using pure SSD storage may be wasted potential [17:06]
vc: meaning you may be able to get a better deal elsewhere [17:06]
jurov: it *requires* SSD [17:06]
vc: oic [17:07]
mircea_popescu: it requires ssd and about 3gb ram [17:07]
vc: oh, well then the 4GB server should do it, at least until the blockchain outgrows that :@) [17:07]
vc: though I think I should be able to offer expansions to disk space, not sure about that yet [17:07]
mircea_popescu: how much would that be ? [17:07]
vc: $40 a month [17:07]
vc: also as of this moment 4 units of space are not currently available on cock box, sadly :( [17:08]
vc: too much money xxx [17:08]
mircea_popescu: tell you what : i'll buy that, and pay it in advance for a year, provided you install and manage a trb node there. [17:08]
vc: pffft [17:08]
mircea_popescu: (it mostly builds without problems via V) [17:08]
vc: I do not know what a trb node is [17:09]
mircea_popescu: but the logs are your friends :) [17:09]

mircea_popescu: word. [17:10]
vc: how much bandwidth would something like this use monthly? [17:11]
mircea_popescu: not terribly much i've never measured to average > 1mbps. [17:13]
pete_dushenski: 1-2gb per month ? [17:13]
mircea_popescu: but at any rate this conversation definitely lays bare just how badly we've missed the boat by not increasing blocksize when usgavin wanted to. [17:13]
mircea_popescu: woe to us. [17:14]
vc: ok yeah cool, so are you asking me to run something independently while you do X on your server? or are you asking me to configure your server myself, setting up the daemon? or are you instead asking me to do nothing except give you your server [17:14]
mircea_popescu: the middle one it seems. [17:15]

ben_vulpes: (much less wife family and other women) [18:27]
pete_dushenski: all men everywhere ever have been 'generally' too broke to maintain woman, thus polygyny, neh ? [18:27]
ben_vulpes: but yes celebrate the no children lifestyle, the 'mgtow' lifestyle, the hairshirt environmentalism [18:27]
pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: whole thing reads like 'slave, but only one' [18:28]
ben_vulpes: "children are a misery, women are a misery, work is a misery, taxes are a misery, the only things to live for are theorems and killing hitler" [18:30]

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i wasn't aware the notion of children = unwanted pests is at all controversial. pretty much the only mammals that engage in it do so when they have absolutely no other option, much like poor working classes hitting the gin. [18:46]
pete_dushenski: my little bruiser is... still a bruiser. no convergence to the mean just yet. [18:46]
mircea_popescu: even someone as clueless as a medieval noble needed the entire arbitrary structure of male inheritance to be marginally bothered with it, [18:46]
mircea_popescu: and even then they barely bothered and generally the children lived as slaves / war captives. (see the duke of perigord's adventures for a fine example of this) [18:46]
pete_dushenski: 'children are better seen, not heard' (tm) [18:48]
mircea_popescu: heck, it's amply documented how britain throughout its rise and preeminence treaded middle class children as exactly war captives, even going so far as to switch them around so natural affection won't entice the female to get in the way of mistreatment. [18:48]

mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes you understand, statistics says exactly nothing about the individual case. [18:58]
mircea_popescu: that's why actuaries make miserable managers. [18:58]
pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: the fact that chicago hasn't been able to muster so much as a sneezing fit since then is what's allowed it to be embalmed so well. not all cities are so fortunate as to have only ONE boom. [18:59]

mircea_popescu: that's what you attempt to do by moving it into the field of plainer mechanics - but it also becomes very banal for the move. [19:20]
mircea_popescu: girls do a lot of home cooking. you've never had better bread or sweets or sauces of all kinds or soups, or what have you. but is it cheap or is it expensive ? they can not beat the 2.50 mcd meal or the 7 dollars for a pound of hershey's sugar goop. which is what people usually complaining of the cost of "natural living" usually eat. [19:22]
mircea_popescu: and on it goes in that manner. [19:22]
ben_vulpes: and if one gets enough of it, even the $20/plate shit starts to lose its appeal. "what did you bring me? and at what speed? i get better at home in my underwear, and it's salted properly to boot." [19:23]
mircea_popescu: i was not even thinking of anything under 100 a plate tbh. [19:23]
mircea_popescu: there's no way for mass market restaurant to compete with dedicated cook of your own training not if you're of any taste at least. [19:24]

mircea_popescu: starred restaurants can, and no one else. [19:24]

mircea_popescu: i fail to see what's intelligent in this so far. maudlin spuriosities about stuff ~I~ know about, and i'm so much a "computer dork" as i'm a fighter pilot. [22:24]
mircea_popescu: anyway, the fucking obvious reason why c decided to be row-major is because the screen flows top to bottom not left to right. [22:26]
mircea_popescu: for all the wankery & assorted namedropping for no useful purpose, he might FUCKING KNOW THIS MUCH. [22:26]
mircea_popescu: oddly, "no updates since 2014" stands against libflame, but not against lapack/blas. which was last updated in 1974. [22:30]
asciilifeform: ditto macsyma [22:31]
asciilifeform: phun phakt, i actually put motherfucking macsyma to use at rupturefarmz [22:31]
asciilifeform: it beat the shit out of 'modern' algebratrons [22:32]
mircea_popescu: anyway, the marginal point here is that yes, sooner or later - and likelyt sooner than i'd like - we'll end up havign to tmsr this stupid shit also. [22:32]
mircea_popescu: and ada will be epic for the purpose. [22:32]
asciilifeform: hey i started tmsring it before there was tmsr. [22:32]
asciilifeform: and it is quite pointless to do symbolic algebra in anything other than a lisp. [22:32]
asciilifeform: (ada is quite ok for writing lisps in) [22:33]
mircea_popescu: heh. [22:33]
mircea_popescu: and the supersecret future plan of factory -> vsli -> ada -> lisp -> scheme / numeric algebra / stuff is busted open by careless accidental coversations in a public channel [22:33]
mircea_popescu: we totally have to introduce a secrecy system because look how well it worked for the usgistans. [22:34]
mircea_popescu: anyway. wank, a locklin stock in trade (tm). moving on. [22:35]
asciilifeform: to me algebratron is ~half the point of even MAKING computer at all. [22:38]
